ATK Vs CFC Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Rampant Chennaiyin find themselves slowly moving ever closer to a spot in the top 4
Where everyone else has slowly dwindled in their efforts to make it into the top 4 of the Indian Super League 2019-20, Chennaiyin have battled all odds to make for the success story of the season. From enduing a lacklustre start to now within distance of breaching the top 4, the unit’s reslliance and perseverance has stood tall to see them rampantly gallop up the points tally.
Unbeaten in their last five encounters, the club has made massive strides to sit in 6th spot as things stand. More importantly though, they have two extra matches to play as compared to fourth placed Mumbai City with just the 4 point deficit refraining them from reserving the coveted spot in their name.
And they’ll be immensely buoyed with their showing the last time around with the side curtailing Bengaluru to a 0-0 draw to accrue a crucial point from the affair. It will instil the side of much needed confidence ahead of the day’s clash as they look to pull off another unscathed result and keep their dream of making it into the annuls of the league standings intact.
ATK Vs CFC Probable Winner
While Chennaiyin are one of the most electric sides in the league at the moment, things will be far from straightforward for them on the day. They are taking on second placed ATK who’ll make for tricky opponents, a side we see Chennaiyin drawing against given the immense fortitude and resolve prevelant in their ranks at the moment.

ATK Vs CFC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Vishal Kaith from Chennaiyin was an instant pick for us in the goal-keeping component of our Dream 11 side. He’s made for an extremely treacherous goal-keeper to score past, someone who has left opponents flummoxed and beleaguered with his worldclass nous of shot stopping traits.
ATK Vs CFC Dream11 Defenders
Having let in just 11 goals this season, ATK’s good defensive showings have been born courtesy of Pritam and Prabir. The two acumen filled players have not only shown their mettle to halt sides from traversing past them but have kept persistently walloping down the park a well to provide ample attacking support to the side further up the pitch.
We are also opting for the one player from the opposition over here with Lucian Goian coming in owing to his elaborate knowhow of the game.
ATK Vs CFC Dream11 Midfielders
He’s helped himself to 6 goals this season, numbers which emote towards the quirky brand of attacking football Rafael Crivellaro is bestowed with to make him our sole selection from Chennaiyin for the imminent encounter. From the opposition meanwhile, we’ll begin with Edu Garcia who has scored the four goals this term.
Francisco Javi-Hernandez and Armando Sosa-Pena come in as well from the unit, two players who have helped provide impetuous to the side in their sorties of pulling of goals at regular intervals.
ATK Vs CFC Dream11 Strikers
Chennaiyin’s leading scorer with an astounding 12 goals this season, the expansive skill set of Nerijus Valskis has seen him become one of the trickiest players to face off against. On the other hand, the opposition’s leading scorer with 13 goals, Roy Krishna comes in for this one alongside David Williams who has spruced his side’s attacking component with pulsating performances.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are going to be making Roy Krishna our side’s captain for the day while Valskis is our vice-captain given Chennaiyin’s ever prevelant vulnerabilities in defence.
